Nature enthusiasts are being urged to get involved in a nationwide mammal survey.

Wildlife charity People's Trust for Endangered Species (PTES) is calling for volunteers to take part in its annual Living with Mammals survey.

People are being asked to look out for a variety of animals including hedgehogs, mice and foxes between March 26 and June 24.

Volunteers can choose any green space to survey.

These areas have to be within 200 metres of a building and could be a rural or urban garden, an allotment, a park, or a green space near to someone's work.

Once a suitable space has been identified, PTES is asking volunteers to visit this site for a short amount of time each week, and record any sightings of mammals, or the signs they leave behind, such as droppings or footprints.

To take part visit www.ptes.org/lwm.

Alternatively email LwM@ptes.org to request a printed pack.
